wins re-election. >> that's essentially the tenor of an e-mail that david siegel of westgate resorts sent to his employees recently. in the meantime, here's a look at how we're finishing out. the dow off the lows, down 128 points today to 13,345. three down days in a row now. the nasdaq down 13. the s&p down 8. down four sessions in a row. all major averages are down for the month of october. fears over earnings and global growth weighed on the market once again. we're wondering if october will be as scary as some often predict. if past days are any indication of what lies ahead, should investors be concerned right now? are you nervous here? can we see more selloff? >> if you look back at last 70 years, we've had a 10% correction on average once a year. we had that from april until june. we get 5% corrections better than twice a year. we're probably in that. if -- >> i think the highs for the year are actually going to be made in october. clearly last week we saw really strong market right now. what gives me confidence is that, you know, a lot of hedge funds have underperformed, long

by doing the unthinkable: talking to their employees. >> david siegel is the owner of the largest privately held timeshare company in the world, a billionaire. he sent this e-mail to his 7,000 employees saying, quote, "if any new taxes are levied on me or my company, as our current president plans, i will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company. this means fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone. >> this is an email from arthur allen, president and ceo of asg software solutions. subject: will the us presidental election directly impact your future jobs at asg? i can tell you if the us reelects president obama, our chances of staying independent are are slim to none. if we fail as a nation to make the right choice and we lose our independence as a company, i don't want to hear any complaints regarding the fallout that will most likely come. >> stephen: yeah. if these ceos or their companies have their taxes raised, you employees will lose your jobs. which would be terrible, because then you couldn't work at that great place where your boss threaten

. >> thanks, michelle. david siegel's e-mail touched off an online fire storm after we first reported it yesterday morning. this was the e-mail in which the westgate resort ceo told his employees if obama is elected i might have to lay off all my workers or shut down the company and fire all 7,000 of them. yesterday, david siegel told us he wasn't threatening his workers, just educating them. mark cuban isn't buying it. he said he thinks siegel's e-mail shows perhaps poor judgment. telling or forcefully suggesting how your employees should vote is the exact way to create problems among your workers and reduce productivity, he tweeted. i received calls from many westgate employees yesterday. their reaction was a little more mixed. some said they agreed with siegel and were proud of the comments. others say he did the same thing in the 2008 election and that siegel was again strongly suggesting that workers, quote, vote for his party. look, it's his company. he can do what he wants. while this may not be the textbook management strategy, siegel has never been shy about what he believes.

siegel is now explaining his pressure tactics to cnbc. siegel's the guy building the biggest mansion in america. he sent an e-mail telling employees he'd lose his motivation to work if the president's re-elected. he's threatening to retire and close up shop. siegel swears he's not trying to pressure employees, he's just educating them. funny, the koch brothers, they say the same thing. darrell and charles koch sent a list of suggested candidates to 500,000 employees during the last election. monday, they launched a $1 million ad campaign in 13 states. they say they're just educating voters. all of these millionaire and billionaire bosses are supporting romney for several reasons. romney will cut their taxes and deregulate their industries. it's not about the workers, it's about using the workers to deliver greater wealth to these bosses. let's turn to robert reich, former secretary of labor under bill clinton and now a professor at public policy at uc berkeley and author of the book, "beyond outrage." this would take many employees, i think, to outrage, knowing that their job could b
